Today I came upon John Chervinsky's images "An Experiment in Perspective" and was utterly delighted. On his website he has this great quote by Marshall McLuhan: "A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding."

Today I had the pleasure to view Roger Ballan's work at the Monash Gallery of Art. I have adored his work, ever since I came across one of his books and it was a delight to stand in front of his images and be able to study them. His photographs are an inspiration and I have posted some of his work previously.

There is beauty everywhere and as a photographer we just have to concentrate sometimes to see and appreciate it. Most people would have probably walked by these scenes, but Nathan Cyprys - I imagine, was inspired by the random spaces he encountered.

I came across Brendan George Ko through Darrens website and thought if I not post them straight away, I will forget where I found them. I have always adored words and when I read I find myself underlining a word here and there, only to put them together at a later stage and try different variations to make up little stories, titles or poems... So you can imagine how much I appreciate these beautiful and simple images with the typography. Finished pieces, ready for a book cover.

I do not know how I ended up with such a long to do list, but as ideas are sprouting, they need to be reevaluated, tested and designed. I am planning to apply to do an MFA next year, but that comes with such a huge fee, that I have been trying very hard to think of new ways to come up with the money. But this post is not about me, it is all about Guy Archard. It was a delight to find his website and be stopped by his magical images, where nature is a mystery, that is discovered up close.

I do not imagine this to have been an easy assignment/investigation as Paolo Woods with Serge Michel & Serge Enderlin went out to explore the oil trade. They came back with outstanding images and impressions and put a book together "Oil/A crude world". I am fascinated by the depth of his images, his closeness to the people and the way he shows us a certain truth in all of this.
